of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this morning. people stood in long lines over the weekend to withdraw money before the policy went into effect and now russian president vladimir putin is calling the move, quote, unfair, unprofessional and dangerous. russian citizens make up the majority of billions of euros held in cypress bank. this is important. >> cypress. >> who cares about cyprus? >> come on, cyprus. are you telling me if somebody sneezes in cyprus we get a cold than on the nasdaq? >> tell us why. >> we have a cold on the nasdaq. the nasdaq is going down today. not too many people care about cyprus but a way the europeans have screwed up the bailout by getting the people to pay a part of the cost. you could have a run on the bank and europeans say why do i have my money in this bank? might be a tax on me next. it shows that europe is still a mess, that they h

if republicans agreed to new tax increases. we have heard this before. however, the white house put a positive smpin on the meeting calling it a good substantive exchange and called it a good conversation. the president admitted more with abc news there is more to be done. >> ultimately it may be that the differences are just too wide. if their position is we can't do any revenue or we can only do revenue if we gut medicare or gut social security or medicaid. if that is the position we probably will not be able to get a deal. >> if your piece up on politico read conflicting reports, some say it was more of the same from the president and others say it was a step in the right direction for him to come up to the hill and visit bus. anything come out of this meeting yesterday and the ones that will follow today and the rest of the week? >> i would just replay that clip over and over and over again and that tells you everything you need to know about the next year. the president wants tax increases and he does not want to do a bill with big changes in entitlement reforms. republicans don't want ta

's not going to happen. you talk about a trillion dollars of new taxes for patty murray that is unlikely to happen. where is that middle? >> it's going to take the president to forge and find the middle, which is why, again, i echo the points made at the beginning of the show and to mike's point about the weirdness of the town, there was a time when this was not weird. you come from one of the great states and one of the great leaders who helped create this environment, the great tip o'neill understood you had to work with both sides. >> and teddy kennedy. >> no doubt about it. the most productive leader was teddy kennedy in the senate and not only washington. it takes the president to unthaw this. he is going to probably take as many arrows as you said before from the democrats as he will republicans. there are democrats who are staunchly opposed to spinning discipline around entitlement. >> can i say it's actually nice? because this president really hasn't crossed his base a lot the past four years. it's nice for me to be able to say to republicans, who say i think legitimately say he

. the sequencing done right on this cut spending cuts and tax reform. things sound great and they're moving along now. but joe, as we talked about earlier, you're going to have reticent democrats. and even key congressional races who are going to slow down a bit and saying, look, i want immigration and guns dealt with, what are we doing about the economy and the budget, the debt, and tax reform? >> and this is, richard haas, you can only push people so far, i mean, not the republicans' best friend. this weekend said democrats you're about to lose me. i pay 40% federal, 15%. well, i hear we have it cued up. let's go. this is bill maher this weekend. >> -- actually do pay the freight in this country. i just saw the statistics, something like 70%. and here in california, i'm just going to say, liberals, you could actually lose me. it's outrageous what we're paying. over -- i'm willing to pay my share, but yeah, it's ridiculous. >> and not only that -- >> wow. >> people like bill maher pay 55% in california, people in new york pay over 50%. in new jersey, why is a republican sitting at 70% plus appro

a robust debate on tax reform? that is sitting out there and no one is moving on it and everyone is very unhappy with the tax code as it currently exists and there are some opportunities there to pick up some additional revenue. but, at the same time, it would send a signal, i think, across the entire spectrum of the country maybe they can get something done. >> i agree with you. you're an experienced observer of these things. why can't we have this? the simpson-bowles system is hire tax reform and we are trapped. >> i don't know why the president just doesn't reach out and say we are having trouble with these other issues. this is one in which we can all gather at the same place and get something done. >> isn't the argument what to do about the -- that's where everyone sort of breaks. the president is saying, it's not -- some of it should be used to -- some of it should go back into the government and some of it could be used to lower tax rates. >> the president is not spending the good tax reform and debate is why. washington loves to talk about taxes. a long time now sideways spending

involved entitlements and taxes and whether the two sides could find enough common ground to reach some sort of grand bargain on the budget. a number of top republicans said they liked what they heard, particularly on the president's willingness to address entitlement reform. at the same time, one republican acknowledged the president's central point that unless they give him cover on revenue, he's not going to have much left convincing his own party tackling programs like medicare. >> that is where we are, david, right now. the president understandably needs cover before he goes to house democrats and say i'm going to do this with cpi and adjust medicare benefits down the road. republicans the same way. saying this is the position i'd be in right now. don't even talk to me about more tax revenue unless i know they are going to get serious about entitlement reform because i have to go back to my district and explain why we cut defense spending and taxes are going up. but this sounds like they are least -- >> it's amazing a news story that people get together and talk. it's amazing it's
